I’m in desperate need of some advice.
I’ve come to the point where I consider myself maxed out on CSS and HTML knowledge. Sure I’m learning new things every day, but nothing groundbreaking.
So, I feel it’s time to move on to my 3rd code language.
And if X/Y, any advice on a good first book?
On a sidenote I realized yesterday that I, as I’m sure many others did, gave up on code when I was young. When I was what, 9 or 10, I was programming Basic on my Vic-20. But then home video games came along and I stopped typing on my keyboard…
Well that’s my dilemma, which one is "the easiest" after html and css?
…But cutting straight into jQuery, isn’t that too much progressing skipping?
I guess it’s just a matter of choosing one asap, not getting any younger or smarter talking about it , haha :D
I was typing something earlier, but was rudely interrupted in the middle of it. I’ll post it anyways:
I would say learn either PHP or Django. RoR, in my eyes, is being phased out as a framework (many people would rather use Python over Ruby). PHP will always keep it’s place as a simple coding language, but Django is quickly rising to be the framework of choice. Most importantly, Django is OOTB more secure than PHP. I don’t mean to be elitist, but being able to skip most security checks makes a language more worth learning, because many people, especially me, find security to be the most important aspect of the application, next to usability.
